Exceeding expectations for three decades
Full-Service Leaders in the Multifamily Industry
Celebrating a Legacy of Excellence
CAPREIT is a vertically integrated, full-service owner and operator of multifamily apartment communities. Our experience is rooted in owning and operating multifamily apartment homes, renovation and construction, third-party management, multifamily acquisitions, and residential real estate investment strategies.
Our team of experienced professionals brings fierce dedication and high standards to every project. We view each project as part of our legacy within the fabric of the communities in which we work and reside.
An integral part of our success is our strong commitment to our core values. We build long-lasting and trusting relationships by maintaining close communication across all channels, taking accountability, practicing full transparency, treating everyone with respect, and working together towards excellence.
The Company’s careful management and thoughtful guidance through some of the industry’s most difficult times – the 1998 Long-Term Capital Management crisis, the Great Recession and the COVID-19 pandemic – created a foundation and instilled a resiliency that few others in the industry can match. As a result, CAPREIT boasts some of the most long-standing and solid relationships in the industry. CAPREIT is and has always been a company with whom others want to do business.
Today, the Company is led by Andrew Kadish (Chief Executive Officer) and Jennifer Kadish Cassell (President). Both joined the Company in the early 2000’s and served in various positions before assuming their current leadership roles. Andrew and Jen used this “start from the bottom” approach to grow into their leadership roles while gaining the respect of the CAPREIT family and outside stakeholders.
